Event Description

Japan is famous for its four distinct seasons, which influence all aspects of life. Winter is a very busy time in the sake world – this is the peak time for sake brewing, and freshly pressed sake (called shiboritate in Japanese) is a particular treat for this time of year. This style of sake is bottled straight off the press no intervention or modification, yielding big, bold and dynamic fresh flavours.

Winter is also the peak time of year for enjoying warm sake, so if you have been wanting to delve into this fascinating and delicious area of sake study, this is the class for you!

Our sake tutor Sarah will teach you a number of methods to easily warm sake at home, explain the various sake service temperatures and help you recognize the best styles of sake to showcase warmed up.

This class will be great for everyone from sake novices to aficionados and includes a tutored tasting along with a Powerpoint lecture covering winter seasonality in Japan and the unique elements of sake enjoyment at this time of year.

On the evening you will taste six different winter sake across a variety of styles and service temperatures, accompanied by fine cheeses and Japanese-influenced nibbles including a handmade seasonal wagashi (traditional Japanese sweet).
